Legacy Portal: Duplicate or Repost an Assessment

After posting an assessment, you might find that you need to post it again, or you might want to reuse the questions and options for a new assessment. Depending on your goals, you can either repost the assessment or duplicate it.

  • Reposting an assessment: Take this approach when you want to deliver the same assessment for multiple sections of a course, or when you need to post a make-up assessment for an exam-taker.
    • The new posting will have the same Exam ID.
    • You can enter new post settings, such as the assessment password and the start/end dates. You cannot change the questions, scoring options, or other assessment settings.
    • Your reports for this assessment will include all of the data from all of the postings.

    Note: For more information about make-up assessments, see: Legacy Portal: Make-Up Assessments

  • Duplicating an assessment: Take this approach when you want to use the original assessment as the basis for a new and completely separate assessment.
    • The new assessment will have its own Exam ID.
    • As with any assessment, you can add or remove questions and customize the assessment options as well as the post settings.
    • The new assessment will have its own reports. Data from this assessment will not be included in the reports for the original assessment.
